American DJ Diplo defended Madonna in a new interview to Rolling Stone explaining why the queen of pop isn’t having much success with her music.
Madonna recently released her 13th album titled, Rebel Heart, however, it saw little success and failed to reach No.1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
“She created the world we live in,” the DJ told Rolling Stone. “It already sucks to be a woman in the music industry, but to be a boss woman is even harder. She sold out her tour in minutes, but no one seems to want her to succeed – ‘Madonna, we’ve been there, done that, now we’re about Kim Kardashian.’”
Diplo added: “Her song ‘Ghosttown’ was a guaranteed Number One for anybody else, but she didn’t get a fair shot. With ‘Bitch I’m Madonna,’ everyone said there’s no way it will go anywhere, but I’m like, ‘Screw it, it represents you more than anything.’”
Diplo also took the time to mention his beef with Taylor Swift had now been squashed. The producer and pop star feuded last year when Diplo called her out on Twitter.
“We squashed it! I saw her at the Grammys and she was super nice and cool. Her fans loved the beef, though. That’s all they have – they don’t have, like, real things going on,” he said.
